From the pen of JJ Grandville comes this wonderful Victorian French engraving from 'Scenes de La Vie Privee et Publique des Animaux' (Scenes from the Private and Public Life of Animals), published by J Hetzel et Paulin, Paris 1842.

It humorously depicts a large Mama bird writing with a quill pen on a manuscript at a lectern. She is watched by 4 small curious fledglings. Wearing a large fruit covered straw bonnet, only her large protruding beak is visible.

JJ Grandville was born Jean Ignace Isador Gerard (1803-47). A French caricature artist best known for his Les Metamorphosis du Jour series of comedic works where individuals had the body of a human and the faces of animals.

Measuring 10" x 6 1/2" the Antique condition is very good with minor corner album marks and age related discoloration.
